2003 Palomino

 
[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]
Completed - 2003 Klein Palomino, size XL. This one has the old-style air+coil shock, and still uses bushings (though I'm eyeballing the Maverick monolink upgrade). Still, I've found it to be an astounding ride.

BeDrinkable Wow.

Voted 10/10

That is awesome. I've never seen one of these before (that I know of). Love the internally routed cables and OLD-school rear schock!

That 'old-school shock' was the Achilles' Heel of the works. It's a magnesium body, and also a structural member of the rear triangle. It developed micro-cracks just below the seal (as these have a rep for doing) and now leaks air and grease! The frame is just a pretty decoration in my storage. I can get a newer model shock, but it's $$$ that I don't have right now.

Beautiful bike, though, and it's definitely a Klein!!!
